Just over here confusing my muscles!!!! Trainer tip Wednesday Don't fall prey to fitness accounts that promote crazy exercises in the name of muscle confusion. With all the content getting post to social media these days it's inevitable that people feel the need to reinvent the wheel. With new fad workouts and diets it's hard for beginners to tell the difference between what works and what is complete crap (most of these instagram models don't even do the shit you see‼️. It's fine to throw variety into your accessory work but never forget about the basics. Progressive overload in your basic lifts should be the foundation of a program. What's going on Instagram isn't always the best for a program
Here's an effective #exerciseoftheday
The Gironda Press is an amazing chest exercise. Popularized by many in the fitness world- Don't go too heavy, as it can be stressful on the shoulders. It's also a heck of a lot harder than regular bench press. (Don't mess with this if you have shoulder issues). EMG tests have shown it activates the chest, upper and lower, harder than any other exercise.
Essentially you are doing a regular bench, except lowering the weight to your collar bone. Use a spotter and stay a couple reps shy of failure. Don't want to lose your head.
